A really interesting and worthwhile project. Its other great relevance, beyond that of the overshadowing war, is the patchiness of progress. Many of the grand buildings have been painstakingly repaired and restored, as have even the old German bunkers. But note how, in general, old trees and parks have disappeared and been replaced by bitumen and concrete pavements and rows of parked or waiting cars. And what happened to the statues of the saints in the old church? Note also that in many cases, rough textured buildings and stone walls whose charm and feeling of great time have been replaced by bland concrete or smoothed-over facades.

It's amazing to see an average street, like the ones we know today, And see troops marching down them like something we would see in a movie.
Although I would never wish it upon anyone, there is a certain beauty to the archaic way of life during WWII. A world was torn apart, but unlike moderns war, the entire planet was involved in some way. You could almost say it was the last time the world was all fighting together for one reason or another. Just my opinion.

I hope you understand that with putting them here they are getting the attention they deserve!!
Would be great if someone would do that for the region i am from (ypres) for WW1. Although i think that is a lot harder to accomplish.

Brilliant!
Was this one person's journey to stand in front of and retake one person's photo collection - or a group thing?
Loved the patisserie sign on the shop on the same corner.

A marvelous collection of photgraphs. I wonder what became of all the soldiers, Allied and German, shown in the pictures. May their lives have brought more joy than was possible at that time.

Thank you so much for making this available.

What is truly amazing is how the French rebuilt and preserved their priceless history, while here in the USA, we'd have razed those old buildings and put up a McDonalds. Here, here, great compilation of photos.

this is a labor of love- the french people have done a wonderful job of preserving their sense of community. they honor the past, the lives of those who came before and the brave people who fought to free them.

in north america we would have preserved a few points as monuments, but most would have been raised to make way for condominiums, hotels, restaurants, theme parks and the like- europeans, on the other hand, posess a deep sense of history and feel a strong connection to all those who came before and made their lives possible. americans are only interested in "what's next" and where can i get the latest gadget. the human element is largely over looked in north america.

and while here i noticed two posts which are rather immature. to say the least:

to "SnioQ": "works for me ... u r do it wrong :D"

"u r do it wrong"?- what, in the name of all that is sane,are you talking about? have you graduated from elementry school? have you ever done ANYTHING of any consequence?

i think not!



to "FAIL" "Why so many fakes?"

just a few questions:

have you ever been to normandy? what do you base your comment on? and why would you choose a nom de plume such as "FAIL"?

i doubt that you have the attention span to even remember that you were here and made such a ludicrous remark.

I absolutely love the concept of this. The great wars should be remembered and we must remember those who fought for us.
These pictures are reality (not tv) and it helps those of the younger generations to appreciate the devastation of war.

Very touching and intriguing to see the before and after's. Some of it was devastated and had to be rebuilt, and some not so much. It always amazes me when things like church steeples did not get hit and remain to this day.

I agree that this should be all put in a book.

For some reason I find the old black and white pictures of the damaged building even more beautiful than the new ones of the restored, not sure why.

Great Photo's, fantastic research from the photographer, makes very interesting viewing. Must of taken a lot of time and patience to match all those locations.

Also great testament to the residents of Normandy, that they rebuilt everything rather than just pulling down what are ruins and building new different homes, shops and churches. They returned the area to how it was before the war.

Great reminder of what was an awful time for mankind

I have visited Normandy twice and will go again. it is truly amazing the way they have rebuit the area to appear as it was prior to WWII. The cemetery is one of the most beautiful places on earth and the fallen heros resting there and what they accomplished together must never be forgotten.

Boy oh boy the arrogance and derisiveness of Americans. We were so arrogant - we assumed the French didn't want to learn German; and we were so derisive we fought like hell to kick the Germans out of France before most of them could finish learning Ze Deutsch!
All hail the Chosen One - King Hussein Obama! He is so smart!

Agree with all comments that these are exceptional photos put together with painstaking effort by a talented person that has shown his appreciation of an historic era in world history without politicising it. Great Job. As a side issue...for those folks who wondered about the close attention to detail during the reconstruction of buildings in Europe; I just returned from a trip to Europe and was informed by tour guide personnel that most reconstruction of old WWII buildings is done under close scrutiny of the governing authorities and exteriors must be reproduced under exacting conditions to hold the appearance to the original building---however, the interiors are quite modern and can be gutted and rebuilt to the owners specifications.

Fantastic and memorizing. Many of those great warriors have gone on for their great reward in Heaven while others are still with us living in their 80s and 90s. God bless them all.

My heart is greatly touched by these photographs--I was born in '43, and never knew most of WW2--but my husband was German-he also was born during this time-and our lives reflect the facts of the war. His father was shooting down the planes that my father was building! I mourn the fallen soldiers on both sides, as I mourn our young men in arms today. God bless them, everyone!

My Father was among the U.S. Armored division, at Normandy, when I was born. He never would talk a lot about those times,and I am sure he had his reasons. We lost Dad almost 3 years ago. Although he was wounded while over there, it was cancer that finally did him in.
I am sure he would have appreciated the restoration that has wes done. Again great pictures.
